By the way regarding the brake hoses.Yes I replaced every hoe and line on the car this winter.The only used parts are the front brake shoes and the 2 front wheel cylinders.When I installed the 9" ford housing I replaced everything on the housing except the backing plates which were in great condition.I will try and download some pics to give you guys some idea of the work I did in the last 4 months

Ok people I am back.Today I think I gained some ground with the beast. First thing I did was block off the 2 lines on my MC and it passed  with flying colours.Pedal was at the top and never dropped any amount so I am now ruling out the master.I removed the right front wheel to inspect the brake lining and check to see if I was running out of travel on my shoes.The lining is defenitely down over half way so I will be ordering new shoes .I noticed one of the rubbers on the wheel cylinder was damp so I released the one spring and the pins that hold the shoes on and let them swing away from the cylinder .When I did this I noticed another set of adjusting cams hidden behind the shoes.Which was great to find.I removed both rubber boots from the cylinder and found both ends were leaking.I removed all the rubbers and spring .Checked them thoroughly ,cleaned everything up and reassembled everything .I then removed the drivers front and checked it out .No leaks and the shoes are getting close to the rivets towards the top as the passengers side were.Once I had the wheels back on I adjusted the front shoes more than I did the previous day using the top adjusters this time.I proceeded to get my wife out and do some bleeding.Using the one pump method that was suggested I bled all wheels.I bled the rear 10 times per wheel and the pedal stayed very low but you could hear it drop when I opened the bleeder.I next bled the left front ,the same amount of 1 pump per bleed.Some air cam out but not alot.At this point we still didnt have any pedal.I then proceeded to the right hand front.After 2 bleeds fluid finally came out.Instantly my wife yelled out that she had a good pedal.I continued to bleed until all air seemed gone and then topped off both sections in the MN again.Now when I hit the pedal  I have quit a bit and with the second and third pump it just gets better.1 pump I can hear front and back shoes moving so I think I may have this beast whipped .Pedal feels spongy as it did last summer driving with the original running gear and rear housing .I am going to order a kit for the 2 wheels cylinders and some brake lining just the same.I want to thank everyone for their input it was greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info.When I bench bled the MC it seemed to be fine so I guess something has gone wrong.I will pull it off and take it apart.

Yes When I pushed the pedal down the fluid in the section farthest away from the push rod erupts.The section at the push rod end really does nothing noticeable other than a slight movement in the fluid.I really didnt know what to expect with the cover off  while pushing in on the pedal slowly.So when you push on the pedal should the fluid level go down and when you let off should the fluid return as he did when erupting ?Does having he cover off effect how the brake MC works?

I forgot to mention that my MC has 2 same size sections.Not sure where there is really any difference from front to back when installing lines but I switched to the way the company I purchased from showed in there instructionshttp://www.piratejack.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=11&Itemid=18
